Augustine Camino Trail

Updated: Aug 21, 2022

On Friday 5th August 2022 Team Camino set off to 'fast-pack' the 112 KM of the Augustine Camino

This blog serves to share some details of this incredible British trail route so that you might consider doing it as well. As we are also taking part in the Montane Spine event this was a practice run for carrying and using some kit - hopefully we can double up in this blog and share some useful info on the growing sport of fast-packing and what to do...probably what 'not to do'.

This route is also listed on the Fastest Known Time website which is a wonderful resource to discover more about this trail and hundreds of other trails where you live

Some Back-history:

We are 'Camino Ultra' - so named because we always loved the Camino spirit - the legacy of the trail routes in (mostly) Spain/Portugal/France where modern day walkers follow the same routes of some of the pilgrims. These routes were formed in Roman trade times but became more 'trodden' throughout the Middle Ages.

Perhaps the most well-known Camino is the Camino de Santiago - a 500 mile passage-way starting at St Jean Pied de Port and through four of Spain's 15 regions, ending at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia.
